It's no accident that Jesus told the highly religious they must be born again. It's one thing to want to use your talents for Christ's glory, but it's another matter to let Christ have His way with you. I've decided to stop interfering with Jesus' renovation work in my life. That's hard! Yet, He must increase and I must decrease.... :D
The Lord is calling me to work with people one-on-one or in small groups. I have a passion to go into the community and help the underprivileged know the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Once they are touched by the love of Jesus, they become confident, empowered--they become ready students to unlearn defeating behaviors and strive toward self-sufficiency, and they become mighty warriors for the Lord within their own sphere of influence. All through the mighty power of Jesus Christ!! Isaiah 61:1-4 is so awe-inspiring to me. There's nothing more thrilling for me than witnessing the before-and-after, the awesome transforming power of Jesus working in people's lives!! I also want to edify the body of Christ with the tools to love those who are different than themselves.
Spiritual compatibility is crucial in a relationship. I would prefer to work side-by-side a man with a similar missionary mindset.
Who am I looking for? A man whom God has broken. He seeks to live out a testimony to those around him, in little ways or in big ways - wanting to praise Jesus with his life.
About me: I was raised in another denomination and left Christianity for a few years as a young adult. When I returned to Christ, He led me into the SDA church. I left the legal field to pursue a career that more directly supports healthy and loving relationships. I currently work in pediatric home health care (kids with severe disabilities). I am the mother of a young teen. We're both very creative. We have as individuals served the Lord in public events on stage and taught small groups. We have experience in music, radio, television, art, and theatre. Singing for the Lord is what I was best known for. I just recently moved to a new area and now I'm getting involved in children's ministry. I have held a few positions of leadership in the Adventist church over the years, voluntary and/or elected...and I've been a pew-warmer too.
Diligence in my spiritual life is becoming just as important to me as my personal goals to restore wonderful physical health. My caring for others has grown as well, and I'm glad for that. :) My prayer at this time of life is that God will thrill me with His Word. That He will disclose Himself to me and give me perception, to make what I'm studying in His Holy Word practical in my daily life. I am fit for the Great Commission only when I am operating not on my own strength but from His love overflowing out of my life.

A Sabbath afternoon hike or a stroll through a city/state park. Not totally alone nor with a big crowd of people. I want to have a chance to talk with a friend present, one who gives accountability and space as needed.
It is nice to have something to do other than just talking. But with that said, I do connect much better when we can converse undistracted.
(Just warning you, it's deep!) In human emotions, a wound covered is a wound unhealed. It's amazing how your unhealed relationship/emotional sores poison (seemingly unrelated) areas of your life. And it's incredible in that as Jesus reveals those covered-up sores and heals them, how so many (seemingly unrelated) areas of your life benefit!! I'm so glad I've done the hard work of getting rid of my baggage! Can you say the same thing? Do you totally identify? A guy who's doing THIS hard work in his life is miles ahead of the competition.
I've also learned that it's crucial that your spiritual mission/calling as a single complements your future spouse's spiritual mission/calling. God's ultimate goal for marriage isn't simply to "be fruitful and multiply" - rather, to carry out the Great Commission. Culture didn't teach me this. If someone hadn't taken the time to mentor me about that important point, then I may had never connected the dots. The truth is, if the Lord moves two of His children to marry, it's because He has a gospel mission(s) for them to carry out together that they couldn't accomplish apart. If you don't know without a doubt what mission work God is calling you to (local or otherwise), then what makes you think that you're ready to get married?? If you don't know what spiritual direction you're pointing toward or where you should be heading, how then can you lead your family? Your wife and your kids would be following your lead. Just food for thought!
Allowing Jesus Christ to stay in our way. He is our leader, isn't He? SHOULDN'T that mean that He gets to stay in our way?
I could say more but in short: 1 Cor. 13:1-3.......Adventists are generally known for "what they know." As an Adventist, I want to be known for more than having The Truth. I consider Scriptural Truth a heavyweight shell when it isn't filled with LOVING RELATIONSHIP. It's my prayer that the men who contact me value the principle of Relationship-Filled Biblical Truth.
--I'm actually living out the saying "I'm sold-out for Jesus Christ!" I want my relationship with the Lord to have double the richness and intimacy five years from now than what I currently experience with God. I want His Love to regularly overflow me, this simple jar of clay.
--Raise funds to go on a foreign mission trip with my teen. Either that, or raise funds to go preach at a ShareHim evangelistic series mission trip. (Why limit God to one mission trip in 5 years? If it's His Will, I'd love to do both!) I know it's miraculous what Jesus will do with a willing heart so I'll be a willing heart for Him! This is not about who's in center stage, it's ALL about Jesus.
--Complete my batchelor's degree. Use my degree to work not just to have a paycheck but to have a missionary mindset as well. (Ultimately to become a life coach if it's the Lord's desire for me.)
--Hopefully, my young teen will be well on the way to graduating from SDA Academy five years from now.
--And by then I hope to have met my best friend and future husband. I think it's obvious that I'll be living very full years ahead. So will he, probably! Marriage might be too complicated to do within the next five years, in the midst of all these other things going on. But I sure hope he and I are moving toward engagement five years from now. :D
John 15:14-16. Jesus shows me here that He sees no separation between me and Himself...as though I have to be "good enough" to have access to Him. It's out of this love and acceptance I find in my Best Friend Jesus Christ that I respect His authority in my life and have willingness to obey Him.
"Blessed are those whose strength is in You, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage." Psalm 84:4. I will not be online for a while. I'm trading my internet time for one-on-one time with the Lord. Some call that a media fast. I call it returning to the source of true fulfillment. Jesus is my first love :) I should return here by the end of the year.
Thanks for your interest and may God bless you in your search!
